Wael B. Hallaq

Cambridge University Press, New Delhi, India, 2009, 0521127947 / 9780521127943, First Edition, Paperback, New, 15 x 23 Cm 
The study of Islamic law can be a forbidding prospect for those entering the field for the first time. Wael Hallaq, a leading scholar and practitioner of Islamic law, guides students through the intricacies of the subject in this absorbing introduction. The first half of the book is devoted to a discussion of Islamic law in its pre-modern natural habitat. The second part explains how the law was transformed and ultimately dismantled during the colonial period. In the final chapters, the author charts recent developments and the struggles of the Islamists to negotiate changes which have seen the law emerge as a primarily textual entity focused on fixed punishments and ritual requirements. The book, which includes a chronology, a glossary of key terms, and lists of further reading, will be the first stop for those who wish to understand the fundamentals of Islamic law, its practices and history. Contents Introduction Part I. Tradition and Continuity: 1. Who’s who in the Shari‘a 2. The law: how is it found? 3. The legal schools 4. Jurists, legal education and politics 5. Shari‘a’s society 6.

6 Competition Law Today: Concepts, Issues, and the Law in Practice

Vinod Dhall (ed.)

Oxford University Press, New Delhi, India, 2007, 0195688023 / 9780195688023, First Edition, Hardcover, New, New, 15 x 23 Cm 
The principal objective of competition law is to protect the competitive process. It prohibits activities such as collusive agreements to fix prices or outputs, abuse of dominance, or monopolization, and anti-competitive mergers. Around the world as an increasing number of countries move toward economic liberalization, there is renewed interest in adopting or modernizing competition laws. India, too has taken significant steps away from its post-independence system of governmental controls and protective regimes. The Competition Act, 2002 is on the statute books and is likely to be fully operational within a short period. This unparalleled volume, with contributions from eminent inter- national, as well as Indian specialists, offers a comprehensive survey and analysis of key concepts and issues in competition law. Equally importantly, it contains the essence of the experience of the law in practice in major developed and developing countries. Experts from the respective jurisdictions have written on competition law in Australia, the European Community, Germany, the UK, the USA, Korea, Mexico, and South Africa. This book is particularly relevant for countries such as India, which may be said to have a weak competition culture, and where the need to build a knowledge base is indisputable. The final part of the book is devoted to the evolution of competition law in India, particularly the provisions of the 2002 statute. Throughout, the book highlights the economic context of this law, the role of economic analysis in determining competition cases. 019077

9 Courting Destiny: A Memori

Shanti Bhushan

Penguin/Viking, New Delhi, India, 2008, 067008218X / 9780670082186, First Edition, Hardcover, New, New, 15 x 23 Cm 
"Born in 1925, Shanti Bhushan was witness to the formative years of the Indian republic. Courting Destiny traces the remarkable story of his life—the family’s origins in the town of Bijnor in the United Provinces, the experience of growing up in a joint family in Allahabad, initial encounters with the law when the Constitution of India was being framed, the distinguished career as a lawyer and law minister, culminating in the campaign for judicial accountability. These memoirs provide a participant’s account of some of the most interesting and seminal cases that laid the foundations of India’s constitutional history. They include the Keshav Singh case of 1964 which led to the first standoff between the executive and the judiciary; Indira Gandhi’s election case which unseated her as prime minister, leading to the imposition of the Emergency; the habeas corpus case where the Supreme Court declared that during an emergency there is no right to life or liberty and hence no recourse against illegal detention; and the parliament attack case in which the Supreme Court, while acquitting Shaukat Guru of all charges of conspiracy, convicted him on a charge for which he was never accused. Together, they offer a broad perspective of the evolution of Indian law and the interpretation of the Constitution. Courting Destiny affords us a glimpse of the many fundamental and far-reaching political and constitutional changes that took place in the decades following independence. The descriptions of Shanti Bhushan’s brief involvement in party politics and his time as law minister in the post-Emergency Janata government make for a fascinating insider’s account of an important phase of the nation’s life. In this narration of the author’s life and work, the personal, the professional and the public unfold seamlessly, never at the cost of one or the other. Written in a direct and engaging style, laced with gentle humour, Courting Destiny will appeal to all those interested in India’s legal, constitutional and political history. At a time when both the Bar and the Bench are under a cloud, the illustrious sixty-year career of Shanti Bhushan will be a source of inspiration for young advocates.

10 EC Competition Law

Giorgio Monti

Cambridge University Press, New Delhi, India, 2007, 0521700752 / 9780521700757, First Edition, Paperback, New, 175 x 245 Mm 
The development of competition law in the EU can be explored through three interrelated perspectives: the extent to which controversies in economic thinking affect the design of the law; how changing political visions about the objectives of competition law have caused shifts in the interpretation of the rules; and the institution in charge of applying the rules. The economic and political debates on competition law show that it is a contested terrain, and the way courts and competition authorities apply the law reflects their responses to the objectives and economics of competition law. By characterising the application of competition law as a continuous response to policy and economic debates, the author casts fresh perspectives on the subject. Written with competition law students in mind, Monti sets out economic concepts in a non-technical manner and explores the policy dimension of competition law by referring to key cases and contemporary policy initiatives. ?Non-technical reviews of the relevant economic literature allow all readers to participate fully in the discussion of competition law ?Detailed case studies illustrate the operation of rules in specific circumstances, as well as their general application for a fuller understanding ?The introduction of new topics for study gives the student the broadest possible perspective on the subject Contents 1. Competition law - policy perspectives; 2. The core values of EC competition law in flux; 3. Economics and competition law; 4. Competition law and public policy; 5. Market power; 6. Abuse of a dominant position: anticompetitive exclusion; 7. Abuse of a dominant position: from competition policy to sector-specific regulation; 8. Merger policy; 9. Oligopoly markets; 10. Distribution agreements; 11. Institutions: who enforces competition law?; 12: Competition law and liberalisation; 13. Conclusions. Printed Pages: 568. 020793

15 Family and the Courts in Modern Egypt: A Study Based on Decisions by the Shari'a Courts 1900-1955

Ron Shaham

E.J. Brill, Leiden, The Netherlands, 1997, 90-04-10742-8 / 9789004107427, First Edition, Hard Cover, New, New, 16.5 Cms x 25 Cms 
This important new study describes and analyzes the response of Egyptian society, as reflected in court decisions, to legal reform pertaining to matters of personal status and succession during the first half of the twentieth century. The main issues in this regard are the extent to which traditional law and legal reform are implemented or circumvented in daily practice, and the role of the judges in this process. Family and the Courts in Modern Egypt contains three parts: marriage, divorce, and intergenerational relations. Scholars and the general reader will find its main contribution to be its systematic analysis of court records relating to the application of modern reforms in family matters; and its attempt to situate the legal aspects of family life within the larger context of socio-economic development in Egyptian society.

17 God Vs. The Gavel: Religion and the Rule of Law

Marci A. Hamilton

Cambridge University Press, New Delhi, India, 2005, 0-521-85304-4 / 9780521853040, First Paperback Edition, Paperback, New, 150 x 230 Mm 
God vs. the Gavel challenges the pervasive assumption that all religious conduct deserves constitutional protection. While religious conduct provides many benefits to society, it is not always benign. The thesis of the book is that anyone who harms another person should be governed by the laws that govern everyone else - and truth be told, religion is capable of great harm. This may not sound like a radical proposition, but it has been under assault since the 1960s. The majority of academics and many religious organisations would construct a fortress around religious conduct that would make it extremely difficult to prosecute child abuse by clergy, medical neglect of children by faith-healers, and other socially unacceptable behaviours. This book intends to change the course of the public debate over religion by bringing to the public’s attention the tactics of religious entities to avoid the law and therefore harm others. ?Timely and topical in light of recent revelations concerning the clergy ?Eye-opening and in parts, shocking ?An interesting insight into American law and religion Contents Part I. Why the Law Must Govern Religious Entities: 1. The problem; 2. Children; 3. Marriage; 4. Schools; 5. Property rights and taxes; 6. The military and the prisons; 7. Discrimination; Part II. The History and Doctrine Behind the Rule that Subjects Religious Entities to Duly Enacted Laws; 8. Boerne V. Flores: the case that fully restored the rule of law for religious entities; 9. The decline of the special treatment of religious entities and the rise of the no-harm rule; 10. The path to the public good; Acknowledgments; Index. Printed Pages: 408. 014380

31 Issues of Social Justice (State of Justice in India Series: Vols. I-IV)

Ranabir Samaddar (ed.)

Sage Publications, New Delhi, India, 2009, 8132100646 / 9788132100645, First Edition, Hardcover, New, New, 
This set presents a comprehensive analytical study of the state of social justice in India. The four volumes undertake theoretical and empirical inquiry into the various spheres of justice, collectively creating what can be termed a ‘report card?of the regime of social justice in the country. Authored by some of the finest ethnographers and analysts in the country, the works approach the issue of justice in the broader context of post-colonial democracy, and look at the limits within which democracy permits justice, social justice in particular. The volumes, which are part of the series State of Justice in India: Issues of Social Justice, reveal that the issues pertaining to social justice are extremely contentious, and hence, dynamic. The ethnographic-historical studies are cast in an archaeological mode of inquiry. They highlight how time, place, history, perceptions, arrangements or apparatuses (such as legal, judicial, constitutional and administrative apparatuses) play significant roles in influencing social justice. This set will be a rich resource for students and researchers working in the fields of justice, sociology, law, political theory and Indian democracy. It will also be immensely useful for policy makers, policy analysts, human rights activists and NGOs. Printed Pages: 1276. 028602

33 Justice: Political, Social, Juridical

Rajeev Bhargava, Michael Dusche, and Helmut Reifeld (eds)

Sage Publications, New Delhi, India, 2008, 0761936475 / 9780761936473, First Edition, Hardcover, New, New, 
This book looks at concepts of justice from points of view of various religious and cultural traditions (Hinduism, Islam, Christianity, Cosmopolitanism, Tribal Cultures) and different methodological perspectives (historical, theological, philosophical, sociological). One common thread in these essays is the reflection on ethics universally and reference to the basic values of the Indian constitution. People from different backgrounds were included in the dialogue process on justice that lead to this publication. This volume attempts to express the opinions of people whose voices were not very prominent in theoretical debates on justice and its practical implications. Their perspectives on justice are contrasted with mainstream conceptions of justice, whose representativeness for India today is thereby challenged. Both plain universalism and relativism lack a common point of reference to assess relevance and adequacy of a given conception of justice. Neither plain universalism nor relativism defined by traditional norms is sustainable. The contributors offer a concept of `internal universalism` as an alternative to plain universalism. Combining various forms and stages of `reflective equilibrium` as conceived by John Rawls, this framework provides us with the necessary reference point to assess the relevance and adequacy of conceptions of justice and engage in a comprehensive dialogue on questions of justice.

35 Law and Economics: Series: Readers in Economics

Satish Jain (ed.)

Oxford University Press, New Delhi, India, 2010, 0198067739 / 9780198067733, First Edition, Hardcover, New, New, 15 x 23 Cm 
Economic analysis of law, an area of intensive research for quite some time, has shown that a large part of law, particularly common law, is economically efficient. That is to say, most of law is such that it induces persons involved in interactions to act in ways which result in minimization of social costs of interaction. The results obtained by economists establishing efficiency characteristic of legal rules, standards, and procedures raise many important and difficult questions of interpretation. Is it the case that economic efficiency provides a unified explanation for law? Are efficiency and justice closely related values? Or is it the case that justice is merely another name for efficiency as has been claimed by some law and economics scholars? The readings of this collection introduce the reader to the method economists employ in analyzing law, the main results of law and economics literature establishing efficiency of judge-made law, and the divergent views pertaining to the interpretation of these results. The volume also contains discussion of possible conflict between the goal of economic efficiency on the one hand and the ideals of basic rights, democracy and the rule of law on the other.

41 Policing: Reinvention Strategies in a Marketing Framework

Rohit Chaudhary

Sage Publications, New Delhi, India, 2009, 8178299445 / 9788178299440, First Edition, Paperback, New, 
A first-of-its-kind, this book proposes a marketing plan for the police, using the conventional framework of marketing management. While there is considerable discussion and criticism of the way the police force functions in India, no comprehensive alternative model has been proposed to implement the New Police Management (NPM) approach in the force’s operations. In fact, the necessity for overhauling the police system is strongly felt all over the world in the light of the recent international security lapses. The framework that this book suggests comprises current situation analysis, SWOT analysis, STP analysis and the 8 Ps. Policing: Reinvention Strategies in a Marketing Framework combines marketing principles with the empirical knowledge of police operations to suggest improvements in the Indian police force. It uses the marketing motto of ‘keeping the customer at the centre?as key to finding solutions to the issues that the police face in their everyday operations. In addition, it carries case studies related to police operations from across the world and suggests ways of adapting the strategies used in these to the Indian context. In doing so, the book offers valuable inputs for police academies, public administration, public policy, and state security commissions, as it not only analyses the current situation in the police force, but also draws a clear and practicable roadmap to revamp it.
